Fort Walton Beach Library Fine Reboot

Beginning October 1, the library will cease charging overdue fines on books. Fines and fees for lost items, DVDs, and some other items and services will continue. The library will continue to assess a replacement fee for any items that are kept for an extended period.

If households have fines outstanding from years past and haven’t been in the library for a while, the library wants you back! Over the next few months, existing fines for books will be waived on a case by case basis as long as the items have been returned.

Fines and fees for materials checked out at other libraries in Okaloosa County will continue to be charged. Please call the Fort Walton Beach Library at 850-833-9590 for more information or to check on the status of your account.
